Control your TV with SmartThings
Use SmartThings to turn your phone into a controller for your TV.
Open the SmartThings app on your phone, and then tap Menu. Tap All devices, and then select your TV. An on-screen remote will appear in the app. The options available on the remote will vary depending on the TV.
The volume and channel controls work the same way they would on a normal TV remote. You also have access to Mute, Home, Back, and Guide. Use the arrows or the gray box at the bottom to navigate the Settings menu or apps. Tap anywhere in the box to make a selection.
Note: Your TV must be already be added to SmartThings as a device.
